We've all been there. You want to try out a new recipe, or make a family classic for dinner. You look at the recipe and realize you just don't have that one ingredient. Don't give up on trying a new dish because you may not have everything you need. Many items can be substituted for something similar that will not alter the taste of the dish. Here are a few of the items I use, but for a complete list of substitutions visit http://www.joyofbaking.com/IngredientSubstitution.html.
